|Monmouth College Names New Regional Director of Admission
|Patrick Lupton of Lake Forest, Ill., has joined the staff at Monmouth College in the new position of regional director of admission.
Lupton has a strong background in higher education, having worked at Ellis College, Lake Forest College and Kendall College in recent years, after concluding two decades in the publishing business. At the latter two colleges, he worked in admission-related positions. He comes to MC from Kendall, a top-rated college for culinary arts, hospitality management, business and education in downtown Chicago, where he was a senior director of external admission.
Lupton will be charged with increasing Monmouth College's out-of-state enrollment, in particular the states bordering Illinois and areas of the Southeast and Southwest.
"It's important for the college to be able to bring the experiences of out-of-state students into the classroom," said Lupton, who earned a bachelor's degree in political science from Benedictine University in 1971. "That allows for a more diverse conversation. That diversity of though has a rippling effect, carrying through the conversations the students have in their dormitory life and across campus."
At the same time, Lupton said, the out-of-state students benefit by being connected to a "phenomenal liberal arts college."
He will also help develop and support networks of alumni for referring and identifying potential prospective students for Monmouth.
"It's so important to work with the alumni," he said. "We want to listen to each and every one of them, take their suggestions and go with them."
Lupton, who will continue to live in Lake Forest, and his wife, Therese, have three adult children.
